The lecture will be dedicated to virtual reality as a special direction in media art. We will consider the existing kinds of VR, look at the points where they coincide or clash with more classical art forms, explore what are the features and opportunities / limitations for the artist, whether it is important to be familiar with programming and how to collaborate with developers.
Before the lecture, there is a tutorial where you can look at VR work for a better understanding of technology.
